GLR's first Fleche and Dart Weekend. The finish location is at Penrose Brewing. For those that have not done a fleche, it's a team event. 

  1. Teams can have no more than 5 bicycles (tandems count as 1)
  2. Each team makes up its own route ending at the location of the event 24 hours after the start (6:00 pm on Sunday)
  3. Fleche's must be at least 360k, Darts are 200k
  4. A team MUST stay together. At least 3 must finish for the team to get credit.
  5. A team may not stop for longer than 2 hours at a time, but you can stop as frequently as you choose.
  6. The only timed control must be 25k from the finish and is 2 hours from the finish
  7. The finish window will be from 6-7 pm on Sunday, May 24, 2020.  All teams must complete the full time of their rides in this window.

The RBA will review and approve each team's route. It can be a one way or a loop, the controls should ensure there are no shortcuts, but are not timed (except for the 2 hour control).  You should contact Michele if you want to get a team together.  We will be listing them on the calendar once they start up.  Routes will be due to the RBA 2 weeks from the ride start but earlier is better!

The traditional fleche is one way, but a loop is possible with the corners being info controls.

Geneva has been chosen because it is on the Metra UP-W line straight to Union Station in Chicago.  It also has available hotels for those wanting to stay over on Sunday night.
